Configmgr 2012 SP1 : Broken Applications after upgrading from RTM

January 8, 2013 at 10:45 am in a, Application Model, applications, ConfigMgr, ConfigMgr 2012, ConfigMgr 2012 SP1, SCCM 2012, SCCM 2012 SP1, upgrade by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

Scenario : Upgrading a Configmgr 2012 RTM environment to a new SP1 environment . It was a standalone primary site RTM Build without any CU (5.00.7711.0000).

Issue : After the upgrade was successfully performed , suddenly all applications within my OSD task sequence start failing with the following error code :

The task sequence failed to install application Intel Management Engine 6.0.40.1215(ScopeId_67A221E3-64F0-47D4-AA5A-BB3729EC221F/Application_2071f753-7604-42a5-b6be-b1b45c3c1f0a) for action (Install HW Driver Applications for HP8540P) in the group () with exit code 615. The operating system reported error 615: The password provided is too short to meet the policy of your user account. Please choose a longer password.

Identifying the cause:  After some checks, I saw that it concerned only applications and I discovered that had no ContentID associated to each Deployment Type. In other words, all the applications created and that are embedded in a TS with no direct deployments attached to the Application.  It appears that the upgrade process broke all applications.

Workaround :

We found a workaround, you have simply to add a comment to each DT and it will update the content ID. Nevertheless, the change means that a redistribution of your application on all your DP’s.

Hope it Helps ,
